Murowa Diamond miner RioZim eyes offshore investors

26 may 2009

Rio Tinto Zimbabwe (RioZim), which owns the Murowa Diamond Mine, is planning to bring in foreign investors through a private placement in a bid to revamp its operations.
A local weekly, The Financial Gazette reports that an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders was slated for this week to vote on the planned transaction, adding that it was not clear how much the directors had planned to raise through the private placement.
"Your company has prospects and projects that could significantly increase the number and scale of operations in its portfolio. Apart from financial capability, your directors consider that engaging partners who have relevant technical expertise and skills will expedite and enhance the development of these projects to the benefit of all shareholders," the directors said in a notice to shareholders.
RioZim noted in its report accompanying financial results for the year to December 2008, that there were delays in the implementation of the expansion of Murowa Diamond Mine.
The miner had indicated that USD200 million was required to rump up production at Murowa, which it jointly owns with former shareholder Rio Tinto Plc.
